Media Analyzer – The Ultimate Analyzing Solution

Media Analyzer solution provides a structural representation of the inner structure and media validation of QuickTime, MP4, Fragmented MP4, 3GPP, 3GPP2, Flash Video, MPEG-2 Transport Streams, MPEG-2 Program Streams, AVI, HEVC/H.265 (High Efficiency Video Coding), AVC/H.264 (Advanced Video Coding), MPEG-2, ProRes, AAC (Advanced Audio Coding), AC-3, MPEG audio and WAV media files. The main view presents the corresponding headers, offsets and hierarchical structure of the media file, along with all the full parameter list of the corresponding headers. A separate hexadecimal data preview is available, enabled for automatic file data positioning on header structure selection.

The solution comes in two versions – Media Analyzer Pro and Media Analyzer Ultimate.

Media Analyzer Pro offers QuickTime, MP4 files verification and validation according to the Apple’s QuickTime File Format standard and the ISO/IEC 14496-12/14 standard, MPEG Transport and Program Stream files verification and validation according to the ISO/IEC 13818-1 standard, AVI and DivX files verification and validation according to the Microsoft’s AVI format standard and WAV RIFF files verification and validation according to the Microsoft’s WAV RIFF format standard.

The currently loaded file in the Media Analyzer Pro can be validated by the validation tool integrated in the solution.

Media Analyzer Ultimate is a product extension of the Media Analyzer Pro. Along with the standard functionality of Media Analyzer Pro, the extended product includes HEVC/H.265 Video Validation, AVC/H.264 Video Validation, MPEG-4 Video Validation, MPEG-2 Video Validation, VC-1 Video Validation, VC-3 Video Validation, DV Video Validation, AAC Audio Validation, MPEG Audio Validation and EBU STL Subtitle Validation modules, which now enables not only the container validation but also the audio, video elementary streams, image and subtitles validation. The elementary streams validation process is performed by on-the-fly demultiplexing and verifiication of all audio and video elementary streams subsequently.

The currently loaded file in the Media Analyzer Ultimate can be validated by the validation tool integrated in the solution.

Media Analyzer’s General Info:

Media Analyzer PRO

Media Analyzer PRO

Along with the presentation capabilities, the Media Analyzer can perform multiple operations on the media files, such as demultiplex, re-multiplex, elements extraction, video streams decoding, SEI message removal, blocks extraction and many more.

All container errors, such as important headers absence, incorrect container structure or invalid header values, pointed as mandatory in the corresponding specification are output as Error Report. All container irregularities, which are not pointed as mandatory in the corresponding specification, but have unusual content are output as Warning Reports. Additionally there is a set of Informational Reports, which deliver more detailed information about the file being examined, such as the streams format, media duration, important header fields, etc. .

Each media validation check can be disabled or enabled or set to another report type, such as Info, Warning or Error. The solution can be applied in wide variety of workflows and with many container format deviations due to its flexibility and customization ability.

The validation report output can be exported into XML, HTML, PDF, CSV and TXT report file, containing the full report information. This allows easy integration of the solution with any digital media workflow and further processing of the report information with any third party systems.

The validation takes only a few seconds for an average long and complex media file to be processed.
